Cairde Shliabh Rua

Welcome to Cairde Shalibh Rua (Parents Association)

The objective of Cairde Shliabh Rua (CSR) is to promote the interests of all the students in co-operation with the Board of Management, Principal, teachers and students. We also provide a forum for parents to become involved in matters pertaining to the development of the school by encouraging parents’ participation in promoting the well being and interests of all the pupils and the school whilst also supporting the school in its use and love of the Irish language.

We organise many fundraising events throughout the year and welcome any new or current parents to come along to our monthly meetings. All money raised is to assist the school and make it even better.

Once your child joins the school you automatically become a member of CSR, it is entirely up to each parent as to how involved they wish to be.

CSR is governed by a written constitution (see below) and the officers of the association are elected annually. CSR does not play the role of the Board of Management. There are separate elections for parental representation on the Board of Management.

We also have a Facebook page, so don’t forget to give us a LIKE ! It is a great place to keep up to date with upcoming events, fundraisers and news from CSR.

We meet monthly during the school year. The meetings last for approximately one hour and are informal. For further information please feel free to contact CSR with any queries you may have:
Chairperson: Emma Dowling Kirwan
Vice Chairperson: Lorna Emmett
Treasurer: Peter McKenna  
Vice Treasurer: Nicole Corbet

Rí Rá 2017

We will be holding our annual Rí Rá on Sunday 11th June, 12pm – 2pm. Everyone is welcome whether they are current pupils, joining the school in September or just want to come and have some fun with the kids. All the money raised will be going back into the school and giving our children an even better and brighter future.

We will have lots of fun games for young and old, bouncing castles, a play area for toddlers, cake decorating and lots more. Come  hungry as we will have tasty sausages straight off the BBQ and lots of cake. Look forward to seeing you all there!

Every Wednesday and Friday morning why not walk to school. We meet outside The Gallops (near Dunnes Stores) at 8am. We begin the walk to school at 8.10am and the children really enjoy walking to school with their friends. Hi Vis jackets are available from Áine at the school.
